Hawk hasn't reached the iconic status that Harry Caray (who also worked with Stone) did in Chicago, and he likely won't, but everywhere you go, you hear his jargon or Hawkisms creeping into the lexicon. Kids, dads, even moms blurt out his catchphrases, like repeating a great line from a movie. It doesn't get old, either. Each year he refreshes with something new—"stretch" or "get there." But the funniest thing I ever heard Hawk utter happened years ago in Texas. The game was delayed by a monsoon, "I am telling you what" it was raining sideways. Hawk was working with Tom "Wimpy" Paciorek and he looked out at the rain and casually said: "Wimpy, it's raining like a cow p---ing on a flat rock."
